Sorry, But I just checked the US copyrights website, and each episode is still copyrighted. Unless I'm wrong, that means the episodes uploaded by somebody will need to be removed.

Hey, guys.....Public domain or not, it doesn't make any difference over on the torrent websites where anything and everything is allowed. On the MiniNova forum Movie Noid is offering to upload a few episodes she has of Checkmate. If that happens, I'll provide the links if you want them.

It's not inappropriate at all. If that were the case, then MiniNova and other torrent file download sites wouldn't have existed all these years. :)

Well, Pirate Bay also exists, but similarly its range of content is not all appropriate to post here. So, please just point to the kind of content that would be OK for archive.org. Thanks for your forbearance.

OK, Diana..... I won't post any more links to the torrent sites.
People can find the URLs on their own via net searches.

But thanks for mentioning The Pirate Bay. It's one of the best! :)

Hiya Sir Robin, Could you give me reference numbers please.
I bought these as PD and at 2.99 a dvd of 4 eps they would seem to be priced as PD. If they are not I am sorry, Check your local Hastings to buy the set.

What are "Reference Numbers"? I checked the US copyright office and the episodes you uploaded had their copyrights renewed, such as "Cyanide touch".

And then there were none.

I still could not find these at loc.gov but I will take your word. I did find the music which would be cause for removal if it is the same music. I will look further into these and if they are in fact PD or needs the music cut out I will return them.

Sorry all, Lum

Huh? I found every episode listed as a "motion picture", not as sound.


The episodes were listed under their titles, which includes episodes which were uploaded. They are listed as "motion pictures", and had their copyrights renewed.

Okay :(

I was looking under Motion Pictures and Checkmate. Still They are being sold as PD, I will have to check Hastings to see what titles are in the bargain bin, I downloaded these.
